From some packed-out Open Days to football matches, sponsored walks, rides and mountain climbs, cricket tournaments and so much more, you’ve made August a fundraising month to remember.
We want to say a massive thank you to all those that have raised money for us over the last four weeks – you’ve made such a difference.
Below are just a few highlights…
And don’t forget, you can share your amazing fundraising achievements, encourage others and share ideas on MyFFC. We have a series of dedicated groups you can join, from Fire Family Challenge and Challengers to Runners, riders, walkers and more! Just register now and head to the ‘Groups’ tab at the top of the MyFFC homepage.
